Jeff Schafer, President of the M/THS Alumni Association, member of the Class of 1963, Princeton undergraduate and Stanford Law graduate, and the single most important person in the organization over the last two decades in terms of personal time spent managing it for free, annual work publishing the alumni directory that has enabled hundreds, perhaps thousands of old friends to reconnect, and much more, passed away in San Francisco, Tuesday evening, September 24, following a long illness and hospitalization.  When we learn funeral arrangements, we'll post them.

Mrs. Matthews passed away Tuesday, June 7, 2005 with Tex and the rest of her family at her side.

She was a wonderful lady, a second Mom to us, understanding and tolerant of our teenage behavior, who helped make our times in Madrid some of the best of our lives.  Rest in peace Mrs. Matthews - Love from all of us, the "kids" of MHS.

More on Mrs. Matthews can be found on the message board.

Our good friend Tex, Class of 1962, passed away Saturday, May 12, 2007.  Tex and his good buddy Johnny were some of the prime movers behind our alumni association.  You'll be missed, Tex.

Honorary Members of the Class of 1964

One of the main reasons we have this alumni association is that Tex spent considerable effort trying to locate his old friend Johnny and finally succeeded.  The first reunion eventually grew into our large alumni association with triennial reunions.  Thanks Tex and Johnny and we'll miss you both.

If anyone has the obituary for other departed classmates, please email it and we will post it below.

NUESSELER, PAMELA ELIZABETH On August 30, 2005, an extraordinary life came to an early end, as Pamela Elizabeth Nuesseler passed away peacefully in her sleep. She was 58. Born in 1947, Pamela lived a remarkable life. A natural-born cosmopolitan raised in a military family, she lived in a variety of locales, some prosaic, some exotic, all enhanced by her presence. She spent her teens in San Diego, where she attended Mission Bay High along with a girl named Mary, who would become her closest lifelong friend. 

Her senior year of high school was spent in Spain, where she graduated from Madrid/Torrejon on High School. She treasured her time at Madrid/Torrejon and faithfully kept in touch with her classmates and friends throughout the decades following graduation, many of whom traveled from across the country to spend time with Pamela as her final hours approached. After returning from Europe, Pamela eventually made her home in San Diego, where she became known for her biting wit, raucous laugh, and a zeal for life matched by few. 

Although buffeted by difficulties, she refused to lose her optimism or enthusiasm, and only her passing could extinguish her unique spark. Even after she was diagnosed with lung cancer in January of 2005, Pamela refused to despair. Instead, she faced this final challenge in her characteristic style. She spent her final months surrounded by family and friends, and could often be found in her favorite haunts - Carmen's, Harney Sushi, the 94th Aero Squadron, and, most of all, her comforting home, where she received guests with the same open arms with which she embraced life. 

Pamela was taken from us too soon, and she will be dearly missed. She is survived by her son Joshua, her daughter-in-law Kim, her two grandsons, Jacob and Alexander; her step-daughter Nicole; her sister Nancy, her nieces Kimberly and Michelle, her nephew Vance, and countless other family and friends. Pamela's self-designed memorial bench is located on the north side of Ocean Beach pier, and she'd love it if you came by for a visit, to sit with her beside the sea.

The Death of Don Quijote

For if he like a madman lived,
At least he like wise old died.

(Don Quixote epitaph)

[Those of us who attended Madrid High School did so within sight of the birthplace of Miguel de Cervantes, Alcala de Henares, a pueblo, now town, just to the east-northeast of Torrejon Air Force Base.  Cervantes is the author of one of the world's most famous novels, Don Quijote.]
